Today was the first day that I really wanted to talk to someone on the phone. Just call them up and see how they’re doing. Talk about whatever. I didn’t even have anyone in particular in mind; just someone who speaks English. But I don’t have a cell phone yet and I didn’t want to use the home phone for a long-distance social call, so instead I watched tv. Which led to the other thing I really wanted to do today: flip through a whole bunch of channels. Here I have 5 channels and I don’t understand a single one. Most days it’s fun to try and figure out what’s going on, kinda like a puzzle. Today I just wanted the SciFi Channel, BBC America, Cartoon Network, HGTV. Alas, it was not to be. I finally just popped in the Lord of the Rings DVD. I know it could be a lot worse.
